Based on ‘L’Etoile’ by Edgar Degas. Started: 11:15. Finished: 11:59. In my dorm.
Is this how the bird feels when, in being released from its cage
it staggers onto a sunrise stage,
the change of pace
that startles at the flurry of hands reminding it of forgetful wings?
The bird that sings
despite the seasons
in the sensation of flight.
when the very flutter of your wings
and song in your step
reminds men that no bar can break you?
